“You see, my brethren, my heart is full; I could almost say it is too big to speak, and yet too big to be silent, without dropping a word to you.” George Whitefield
Like a thief, you came
Hiding behind bamboo stalks
A skunk in clear sight
Creativity … impaired
The day my mouth dropped
Nothing is more frustrating than when people plagiarise(UK)/plagiarize(US) your content without giving credit. It sucks and it makes you mad, and you want to reach through the internet and slap them. The best way to deal with such arrogance and lack of respect is to get creative and keep on creating because, sooner or later, they will get stuck in the mire of their own crap. The Day My Jaw Dropped aka Mouth Drop is a first response to such behavior.
“Writing a book of poetry is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo.” Don Marquis
What wakes you up …. thief?
Morning boulders get you up
Steal … pretend to seek
A stain of theft will maim you
The day YOUR jaw drops!
If you are in the habit of stealing content and not giving credit, STOP! I can’t stress enough how important it is to give credit where it is due and develop your own stuff. The more you try doing your own thing, the better you get at it. Period!
My fellow bloggers were equally creative with their selections. Check out how others interpreted the theme – Mouth Drop – below.
This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Mouth Drop. In exactly 100 words creatively describe one moment when your mouth dropped open, chin hit the ground, and tears rolled down your face (figuratively or not). If you prefer to develop this into a longer post, that’s fine too!
Positive Motivation Tip: Creative impulses come to us. Use your own to create, don’t plagiarise/plagiarize others creativity.
